Scale bus diagrams

Hi all,

contemplating building a scale RC model of an MCW metrobus or a bus with a square profile to construct, it will be the first time I have built a model of this type and I will keep the construction solid, yet simple for ease of build and also to make any repairs easy to do should the time ever come...

I am currently struggling to find suitable sources of diagrams of the sides, front and back as well as roof of any bus. I need one which has the dimensions on it (doesn't matter what scale the drawing it to, I can always change it)

so instead of a specific bus I need a source of diagrams...

also what bus should i go for? i like deckers but a single would be an easier build?

I have seen websites that show detail intended for modelmakers, so I will try and recall these and list them here for you if I can find them.
